Katherine Stinson Getting out of her Biplane in a cool ankle-length leather trenchcoat.

Only 21 at the time she earned her pilots license, she became known as the "Flying Schoolgirl," flying exhibitions all over the country, even adding lights and doing loops at night. She set many records, performed in Japan and China, and was the first woman sworn in by the Post Office as an air mail carrier.
